Software firm wants naked web coders
A Buckinghamshire computer software company is looking to recruit female web coders who are prepared to work naked.
Nude House, where staff work as nature intended in a "warm and private" naturist office environment in Amersham, also wants naked male and female sales staff.
Company spokesman Chris Taylor told The Register: "As far as I am aware this is not only the first UK office job for naturists in web-coding or web-selling, but is also the first worldwide facility for naturists to earn substantial sums of money from work that incidentally provides them with the capability to work entirely without clothes.
"Because it is the first establishment in the world it is difficult to advertise - many seem to confuse the issue of being without clothes as being a place without concerns for personal freedom, where sex is paramount in its many varied forms.
"Sex does not play a part in naturism - yes one is aware of differences in sex and size and shape and age of everyone, but the concern is on sales and technical ability, not availability."
Mr Taylor admitted that a naturist office offers "no benefit to business productivity other than providing a nice facility for the staff".
There's no benefit for customers, either, since they'll "never know that the provider is nude".
The company website says: "New applicants will be required to work in the nude from the time they arrive at work until they leave to go home.
"Nude means no clothes whatsoever and no shoes either. All new applicants will be naturists and could be males or females."
Nude House has a sister company - Songbird - where staff peform exactly the same tasks but fully clothed.
